CHAPYA SHAND

“MANT GAYE BANN MAAHEH NAAHEH KO JANT JAAHEH MAHEH. BASSAN HET KIDOH DHAAM TALOH AVIRAM HUTOH NAHEH. SRAVAN YOG GEETAADH KAHAH THEH TAAHAH VIJOGH DUKH. KAEH N ADIKH RUCHHET PRAAN SAMM MITR SANGH SUKH. TEH HUTEH SARAB PRATT HATEH JEH DEEP SIKHA VATT TARRAL PIKH. YUT BRAMHAT PATTIT PATANGH KE PANKH PAVVAN KARR CHAPPAL SIKH.”{2}

Bassan het = For abode. Taloh = Place. Kaeh = Or/etc. Pratt = Them. Deep = Candle like. Sikha = Flame. Vatt = Like that. Taral = Dynamic/temporary. Pankh = Wings. Pavvan = Air. Karr = With. Chappal = Short lived. Sikh/sikha = Candle’s flame.

Sant {spiritual people} have taken abode in the jungle/forest where there are no beings.

Prashan {question}:- Did they not have beautiful houses for living in? , where were the pleasant holy books? Did they leave their houses as a result of being parted from such books? , or did they not have the company of close beloved ones?

Uttar {answer}:- They had all those creature comforts, but they renounced them upon realising that they are all akin to a flickering flame that will be extinguished at any moment. Just a moth’s flapping wings makes the flame more intense but the flame in turn engulfs the moth thus ending its life in this sad manner. In the same way these people have realised that materialism has the same affect on one’s inner peace i.e. are the cause of torment and renounce them as such.{2}.

Prashan {question}:- They have been renounced but by seeing the pleasure of such goods , surely the mann {mind} at some stage becomes greedy?

Uttar {answer}:-

SUYVAIHAH

“YEH MANDAL MATR PARPANCH SABHI TATT, VETANN KO KATT KARAN LOBHA.

JIMM SAGAR MAEH MASHRI MASHRI USHAREH , MASHRI KASH HOTT SO SHOBHA.

TIV NAEK LUBHAI SAKEH N TISEH KHINN , KHEEN KHEEN LAKHI TINN LOKH KI SOBHA.

SHUKTEEGYAH PRAMAHAT N ROOP MRIKHA , TATTVETAN KO N TATHA TIH KHOBA.”{3}

Mandal matr = Circular. Prapanch = Short lived world/universe. Mashri = Nature of fish. Shukteegyah = Pearl expert. Roop = Silver. Mrikah = Lies. Tattvetan = Knowledgeable , spiritual people.

This world which is akin to a con cannot be the cause of greed/attachment for spiritual people. The reason for this is because:-

Just as a fish dives in and out of the ocean but the water is not dented in any way by the actions of the fish.

In the same way the pleasures of materialism cannot “dent” the minds of spiritual people since they have come to know that material pleasures are short lived and give rise to torment.

Just as a pearl expert cannot be confused between pearls and silver. In the same way spiritual people have come to know that that this world is just imaginary and as such has no affect on their minds.

Artharth {In other words} those who do not possess knowledge of pearls can be lured the tiny fragments of pearls in the sand thinking them to be silver. Conversely those who are experts in pearls will never ever be led astray by silver. In the same way tatt vateh {spiritual people} cannot be fooled by materialism because they have accepted that it is imaginary.{3}

Those who’s desire is to do good deeds have succeeded in conquering the worldly bandhan {shackles}.

In the metaphorical mind snake exists the poison of hanker {ego}. They have succeeded in killing this metaphorical mind snake together with its deadly venom.

In the metaphorical winter of life, the moon light causes the sky to light up.

Those people who dwell in this metaphorical bann {forest} from a young age are truly blessed.{4}.

“SUCHH CHARGHANI KHITT SEJ BANHI MRIDH DVAEH BHUJ BAEL BISAAL SIRANOH.

Khitt = land. Mridh = komal =fragile. Sej = bed. Vayanjanoh = fan. K = akaas = sky. Vitaanoh = canopy. Vidh = moon. Sudh budh = intelligence. Badhoo = prostitute.

The land that is beautifully adorned with grass , consider that to be the beautiful seja {bed}. Consider the tree branches to be the pillow.

The pleasant wind that blows is akin to nature’s fan and consider the sky to be the canopy.

Consider the cool moon to ease away the metaphorical heat of torments. Consider the intelligence to be the istri {female} with whom Sant jan {spiritual people} join and engage is vast bliss.

Only these people have tasted the real bliss of life whereas kings and other rich folk are asleep under the intoxication of material pleasures. {5}.

“KAHAH EH CHANDAAL JAAT MAGH MOH DIVJAAT KIDHOH, KAEDHOH KOYOO SHUDR HAIH KEH CHOR VAA TAPESH HAIH.

SANEH GUR NE MUNN TAAHEH VARR SHRAAP DAET NAAHEH, SUKHI JAAT PAATH MAEHEH JAISOH NIKHTRAES HAIH.”{6}.

Divjaat = Brahmin,khatri,and vaess{High priest/warrior/and merchants}. Tapess = oned who undertakes endurance. Yogesh = Spiritual king. Sambakhmaan = spoken words. Sambhav = produced. Ganeh = contemplates. Munn = Spiritual people. Paath = way. Nikhtaes =moon.

When the hermit folk seek donations then this gives rise to the following:-

Is that some chandaal{evil spirit} walking down the road? , or is it divjaati? Or is it a shoodar {untouchable}? Or is it a chorr {thief}? Or is it a Tapeesarr {one who endures for spirituality}?

Because:-

Those who are absorbed in spirituality and focus constantly on the soul rather than material pleasures, who can recognise such spiritually enlightened Kings? i.e. only spiritual people themselves and none else and that is why worldly folk consider such thoughts.

Such thoughts by worldly folk give rise to many harsh words but the spiritually enlightened:-

Listen to and contemplate them but do not engage in giving varr{boon} or sraap{curse} to these people. They remain absorbed in their bliss and continue their spiritual journey just as the moon continues its journey in the sky.{6}.

Darbh = wealth. Bhola = Shiv Ji. Chareh = Have been. Horr = by seeing. Dinkareh = Sun.

In the mind they do not curse anyone, they speak not harsh words , do not commit sins with their bodies , do not steal and they always utter the truth from their mouth. They always engage in pun-daan {good deeds and donations} according to their ability. They do not listen or talk about parai istri {other than spouse} , in fact with regards to that they become deaf and dumb , i.e. wander around akin to Shiv Ji.

They have conquered the flood of trisha {burning desires} , they show humility towards others and conduct themselves in a friendly manner owing to the fact that they see Hari {creator} in everyone which is written in all the Granths {sacred text}. These Sants {saints} have become liberated from raag {jealousy} and dvaekh {duality} just as the sun’s warmth absorbs all whether high or low yet it remains asangh {unaffected and separate}.{7}.

Praan part = let the hands be the bowl. Akheh = consumes. Chitr dvareh = beautiful buildings adorned with artistry. Brameh = wandering. Chael = clothes. Amael = without dirt. Talap = bed. Anantah = land. Anant = limitless. Mool = foundation/base. Amoolah = ceased to be. Beeht raageh = Vairaag = renunciation.

They wander around freely and accept donations that are given to them from the people in the beautifully adorned houses. They accept the simple diet. The directions are their bastar {clothes} and the pleasant land is their seja {bedding}.

They have abandoned avidhya {ignorance} which gives rise to karma {committed deeds}. They have removed all form of slavery/shackles , thus becoming utterly content.

Their fears have ceased to be. By recognising Bramh saroop {the creator} they have abandoned jealousy etc. thus becoming completely vairaagmay {renounced}. They are unaffected by praise or slander. {8}.

The patched coat is made of hundreds of rags. The food is a simple diet that folk donate. The bedding is of a discreet place in the mountains.

The ones who lead a simple and basic life always engage in the simran {meditation} of Atam Saroop {soul}. {9}.

Sarg = Sansar = world. Kari = haathi = elephant. Raat = does the devotion of.

Hey mitr! {Oh friend} I have searched the world high and low. I have not seen or not heard such persons.

The anthiskaran {conscience} is akin to an elephant which joins the metaphorical female elephant of visheh {vices}. Shackles have been placed around the feet which has resulted in the metaphorical leela {drama} taking place. {11}.

Oh brother!

For whom the mountain floor is the bed , for whom the mountains walls are their houses. For whom tree bark is their clothes , i.e. for whom these metaphorical simplicities have become their lifestyle.

For whom the deer has become their friend and as such wander around freely with them.

These people spend their days consuming simple fruits to sustain themselves. {13}.
